It definitely has a dense root ball! Repotting will make a big difference.

Spider plants do like to be rootbound!

My one time boss had the biggest I've ever seen in a huge ceramic pot. It broke the pot. We couldn't believe it.

I've done this... exacto knife, slit roots into quarters at base of plant... keeping attached and spread them out. Or I sit and untangle some of the major roots and they all do fine.

@Brandy2066 did just that and it acclimated well. Went up one pot size only to keep it slightly rootbound and it’s loving it. @columbiariver whoa that’s insane. Would have loved to see that. I finally got its care right after killing two earlier in the season. I tend to my plants too often at times lol I can’t get enough of them.

@rudester1 oh I understand! My other half says that's all he ever hears since I first started this madness with plants in March of this year. "Have to get my plants in the ground", "captain, come look at this!", "oh my hands hurt" etc haha 😄I'm right there with you!
